    I'll counter by repeating D&C's line from "U.G.L.Y.";

    "Uncle Fester, remember him?
    I never knew that you had a twin."

    I can't split them.

    So this is pretty great - maybe a bit too clever for its own good:

    A colleague today mentioned that they were back, and with an electro-pop sound.

    For those that have never seen it, here's the Reading 2000 moment…

    "it's pretty exciting to have people hate you so much that they throw things at you repeatedly." :D

    I'd wager that was more of a punk attitude than anyone else on the bill...

    Dark times. ETA (at Butchers)

    That Guardian piece is great though and confirms my thesis above:

    “Backstage, Slipknot and Rage Against the Machine were coming up to us and telling us how hardcore we were – how they wouldn’t have stayed out there. It was definitely the best thing we did, our crowning achievement.”

    I saw them get bottled off at Reading. It was incredible. I also saw The Rasmus get destroyed by the Reading crowd too. That one seemed more deserving but I enjoyed both bottlings hugely.

    I'm an awful awful person. :)

    They should never have been booked for Reading, a cruel joke at their expense that could only ever end one way.

    Oh I dunno. I think they're fucking great for going ahead with it. It was the bottling of all bottlings and they fucking took it.

    Most rock bands would have swiftly slunk off but I have to join in with the admiration of their attitude. Proper hardcore.
